Our next stop was a palace in the mountains. It is such an fantastic buliding and I liked it a lot. The assistant called it faded charm, but then I think I like faded charm. Wellington stayed at the place in 1810 or there about and during the last big war the place was where spies meet. I felt very at home there.

From the lovely hotel in the maountains we had a trip to the sea. Portugal has very nice beaches I think, and there are very few people..and hardley any bears there. I think the reason is that the water in the Atlantic Ocean is not very warm, but if you are not there for the ocean you will love it I think. I enjoyed the sun and beach and did some sunfading. I can not stay long in the sun as I fade very fast.
We saw many nice places and one of my favourite towns must be Stripy Town or Costa Nova as they call it in Portugal. Most of the houses in the coastal town are stripy and they all have very happy colours. I had an ice cream there and a very happy time.
